    Me: Coming back from the bike shop with my bike, after they replaced an important part (front fork) that was part of a recall last year. I was walking the bike since I didn't bring my clipless shoes,...

    That's an angry-looking road sign there.

  5. I don't think he thought this through too much....

    I don't think he thought this through too much. You're correct that Bixi/bikeshare bikes are not designed to be user-serviceable. That helps to prevent vandalism.

    Apart from the fact that he is...
  6. He's still flaunting the basic idea of bikeshare,...

    He's still flaunting the basic idea of bikeshare, whether he thinks he is or not, that the bikes are supposed to be available for other users within a short timeframe.

    There are different discussions going on here. When I was talking about REI, I think I was referring to general shopping. I've never brought my bike to get fixed at REI. Or I mentioned REI just...

    I've brought up the issue with the CCBID a couple times. They are cyclists too, so they understand the need for a bike shop. That's why they brought in the bike repair person. But as you said, that's...

    I would have thought the demand would be there for a bike shop in PC/CC/PY. There are also large apartment buildings opening in Pentagon City, including the largest apartment building in Arlington....

    It appears that only applies if the goods or money are valued at $5,000 or more. But that's just a number. He has broken the spirit of that law as well as the idea of bikeshare in general. Even worse...
  11. None of those are in Pentagon City, Crystal City...

    None of those are in Pentagon City, Crystal City or Potomac Yard. That's why. HTO is/was the closest shop to me. The former City Hub was also nearby, but that's closed. I don't choose a bike shop...
  12. HTO was more convenient for those in Pentagon...

    HTO was more convenient for those in Pentagon City/Crystal City. The closest REI is at the far end of Columbia Pike. It's not a pleasant bike ride there from PC. I wouldn't mind if REI opened a store...
  13. Hudson Trail Outfitters going out of business

    They will wind down the entire business and close all of their stores in the near future. They have stores on Wisconsin Ave. and in Pentagon Row, Fairfax and Rockville.

    If he thinks he's supporting the idea of bikeshare, he is mistaken.
  15. I saw that guy at the Jefferson Memorial a couple...

    I saw that guy at the Jefferson Memorial a couple weeks ago. It appears that the bike is considered stolen or lost at this point, officially. He's not supposed to be taking a bikeshare bike out for...

    I only saw them fly over once, around 6:23-6:25 pm. I couldn't get a video since I was on a CaBi bike at the moment. They weren't visible for long.

    I think I heard them fly north later on, but I...

    I was riding past the Washington Monument this week when I heard music again. So I stopped by the Sylvan Theater again. This time it was the United States Marine Band. But they were only doing...

    I have two bikes but I still ride CaBi a lot. Actually, this year I've probably used CaBi for 90 percent of my rides. (Yes, I haven't done any long-distance rides this year. But I have done some...

    Is your office near a bikeshare station? If so, you could use CaBi on days where you will only be riding one-way. It's early enough that the in-demand stations in downtown DC (if that's where you...

    They are saying Q3 2017 for Phase I. That probably means Spring 2018. 2.5 more years? You have to keep riding for at least that long, right?

    I'd like to think that the new infrastructure will be a...

    I swam outside for the first time this year. But sadly, I did not bike, except a brief recovery ride on CaBi after a long run. I just haven't gotten into gear at all this year (except for mapping...

    Gainesville remains in the #1 spot. WAAS has been in 2nd place for a couple weeks, I believe.

    But I hear music playing as I ride by the Washington Monument. I knew there was an outdoor concert at the Sylvan Theater a couple weeks ago. Maybe this was something similar. I heard a woman singing...
